Indiea

Akhar – Nimrat Khaira I love this tune from the movie Lahoriye. It’s performed by Nimrat Khaira who hails from Mustfapurm Punjab. There seems to be a male version of this track as any versions from Nimrat has (female version) after it. This one is good enough for me. What a voice.Excellent. Weekly Playlist 2017…

Out of Brussels sprouts a new EP from Annabel Lee

Annabel Lee – Best Good Friend Okay so I was going to post Period Sex from Belgium’s Annabel Lee as I’ve been enjoying the same for a few weeks now but when I came to post on the nearly eve of their new EP Wallflowers (release Friday 2nd on Luik Records) I went back and…

We caught these ELEPHANTS ON TAPE

ELEPHANTS ON TAPE – “Lightweights” “I can see the light in your eyes, you’re too far from my side” Understatment is an art in these days of excessive everything. “Lightweights” is understatement as art, insistent, minimalist keyboards, barely audible backing vocals, looped beats and silence – all integral, nothing wasted, as a spider web being…

Don’t tell Don Johnson but there are No Suits In Miami

No Suits In Miami – Althea This is beautiful. It’s the wonderfully sad, wide-eyed “Althea” by No Suits In Miami, it’s like a tune from my adolescence only more so. You know for a few minutes there I was dancing through an empty nightclub somewhere in Galway, with my magnificent cure haircut on display for…

The Doll’s Housing Crash

Housing Crash – Creeper This is “Creeper” by Istanbul-based Housing Crash. Starting off sounding like a love song, it quickly becomes clear it’s something altogether more sinister – as the band say the song is aimed at “those who confuse love with control”. The very clever video by Ayşe Naz Baykal illustrates the message beautifully….

Cool as ice: Bergfilm

Bergfilm – Nostalgic Love SWITING* has been such a revelation because of moments like this , when you discover a new song (or it discovers you) and you know after 10 or 20 seconds that it’s something really special. This is “Nostalgic Love” by Bergfilm, it’s a gem – beautifully produced eighties-influenced electronica with stunning,…

I’m feeling pretty Lusid right now

Lusid – Under The Carpet Today I attempted to re-felt my garden shed. It took my around 8 hours and although there’s new felt on the roof it looks pretty crap. I’m aching and covered in black dirt. Thankfully I found this tune to make everything seem right with the world again. It’s better than…

Blistering track from Blisterhead

Blisterhead – Border Control Title tack off the new EP from Swedish punks Blisterhead. Border Control’s a great song that epitomises a lot of people’s frustration with Europe’s border policies.Some people just don’t know how lucky they are. Turn it on and turn it up.

I think you should go and get a Garbo ep

Garbo – Cerejeira Okay first I was going to post 22, then Anjo Querubim and now I’ve settled on Cerejeira from Brasilian artist Garbo’s latest ep Cristal. This is a phenomenal record that I can’t recommend highly enough. (Tom this is a definite candidate for record to the week,so have a listen). I adore the…

Hachiku (gesundheit) – Not to be sneezed at.

Hachiku – Moonface & Zombie Slayer Well I’m probably going to break the internet pulling this stunt – but I’m posting two different tunes from the marvellous new self-titled EP from Hachiku AKA singer/songwriter Anika Ostendorf. See I found a track on YouTube called Moonface and I loved it. So then I went to add…

Super World Interview Time: Sale Gosse

They mean it man…yes, we’ve featured the wonderful raucous Sale Gosse on a couple of occasions here on the SWIT – they totally rock and we love them so much, more than is healthy probably. They got it all – fuck you drums, fuck me bass, fuck everything guitar, tunes and atitude, bad atitude –…
